This is about to be a wall of unnecessary, probably ignored text but I don’t really care because I have no where else I’d rather put it than here (where maybe one random stranger will read it).
I don’t really know what to say but I just need to vent. I feel so lost. Why, Sarah? Why. We’ll never know your reasoning, but does it really matter? You’re gone and it doesn’t feel real.
I looked up to you. I wanted to be like you. If only I could’ve told you how much you stood for when I saw you two weeks ago - courage, beauty, happiness. You were everything that I wanted to be. The all around MVP, funniest, most courageous girl. I admired you, and now I wonder why you felt as if you couldn’t reach out.
My teachers cried on Monday. My retired navy, tough guy AP gov teacher broke down. Katie and I burst into tears after practice. We just stood there, in the rain, holding each other and sobbing for what felt like forever. You didn’t know how loved you truly were. You didn’t say goodbye.
I know you were hurting. No one is looking for an apology. No one needs an explanation. It’s just that deep down in my heart I hope, I really hope, that at that last moment, you didn’t regret it.
Rest in peace, Froggy. You will be loved always and forever.
